Open Streets comes to Southwest Garden this Saturday morning, and we are joining in with a tour:
Architectural Tour of Reber Place
Saturday, September 29 at 9:30 a.m.
Meet at west end of Reber Place at Hereford Avenue (both streets closed for Open Streets)
With its central median and large 19th century single dwellings, Reber Place might have passed for one of the city’s private streets. Yet historical development included the city’s largest clay sewer pipe works, a Roman Catholic parish complex, apartment buildings and bungalows. Today the one-block stretch of Reber Place west of Tower Grove Park contains a range of architectural styles and building types on a green, park-like street. Michael R. Allen will offer a short walk along Reber Place.
